what to expect
Here are some frequently asked questions
you may have before your first visit:
Services are about 65 minutes. The music is upbeat and contemporary, and you may even recognize a song or two. Sometimes we’re loud, so we guarantee you won’t fall asleep!
Feel free to come a little early and grab a drink at the cafe on your way in. Here at Eastside, one of our favorite things to do is spend time with friends. One way we do that is by sharing a meal together. After the service stop by Guest Central to pick up your welcome gift and a free voucher for the grill or cafe.
We have amazing volunteers we call Change Makers! On your way in, you’ll find these friendly people wearing red shirts. They are there to welcome you and show you around. If you’re joining us on our Anaheim campus, there is convenient parking for families in our Family Lot, just off Miraloma Ave. You can park there and come in the north door #2
Wear whatever you want and are comfortable in! We are pretty casual around here.
